A friend of mine just showed me an interesting web site (movies.hsx.com). Although, I doubt there is any serious simulated trading mechanism in the web site, it still makes me wonder why there is no movie futures/options in the financial/casino industry, which allow hedgers and speculators to bet on a pre-released/released movie for their own purposes. What do you think? Do not feel weird. We have commodity and temperature futures for some times. Why not movies?
